Providing start-ups, small businesses and developers’ improved awareness of LPWAN networks, Things Connected will foster the emergence of a strong UK-based LPWAN ecosystem to ensure the UK is open and ready to innovate with the Internet of Things (IoT). Their radio network is ever-increasing and our most recent additions include gateways on the BT Tower, UCL, BRE, Imperial, Olympic Park and NPL.
